Note: Visit Pumpkin and Jack O' Lanterns Songs and Poems for more.


What to be for Hallowe'en
A hobo or a bride?
A witch or scary goblin,
Its not easy to decide.


Three Little Witches

(can be sung to the tune of Three Little Indians)

One little, two little, three little witches,
Fly over haystacks, fly over ditches,
Slide down moon beams without any hitches,
Hey ho Hallowe'en's here!

Horned owl's hooting, it's time to go riding,
Deep in the shadows are black cats hiding,
With gay little goblins, sliding, gliding,
Hey ho Hallowe'en's here!

Stand on your head with a lopsided wiggle,
Tickle your little black cats till they giggle,
Swish through clouids with a higgedy, piggle,
Hey ho Hallowe'en's here!


Hallowe'en is Coming Soon

(can be sung to the tune of London Bridge)

Hallowe'en is coming soon, coming soon, coming soon,
Hallowe'en is coming soon,
Oh, what fun!

Black cats sitting on a fence, on a fence, on a fence,
Black cats sitting on a fence,
Meow! Meow! Meow!

Owl's a-hooting in the trees, in the trees, in the trees,
Owl's a-hooting in the trees,
Whoo! Whoo! Whoo!

Witches flying on their brooms, on their brooms, on their brooms,
Witches flying on their brooms,
Eee! Eee! Eee!

Jack o'lanterns grin at you, grin at you, grin at you,
Jack o'lanterns grin at you,
Oh! Oh! Oh!

Hallowe'en is coming soon, coming soon, coming soon,
Hallowe'en is coming soon,
Oh, what fun!


Witch, Witch

Withch witch, where do you fly?
Under the clouds and over the sky.

Witch, witch, what do you eat?
Little black apples from Hurricane Street.

Witch, witch, what do you drink?
Vinegar and good red ink.

Witch, witch, where do you sleep?
Up in the clouds where the pillows are cheap.


Owl

An owl sat watching in a tree,
Just as wise as he could be,
Watching tricksters from door to door run,
Trick or treating and having fun.
After he had watched the whole scene,
He said, "Whoo, it's Owl-o-ween!"


The Witch

There once was a witch of Willoughby Wood,
And a weird wild witch was she;
With her hair that was snarled,
And hands that were gnarled,
And a rickety, kickety knee.
She could jump they say
To the moon and back,
But this I never did see.


Skeleton Parade

The skeletons are out tonight,
They march about the street,
With bony bodies, bony heads,
And bony hands and feet.

Bony bony bony bones
with nothing in between,
Up and down and all around
They march on Hallowe'en.


Cat

Cat,
Cat,
Your eyes are bright and green,
Where have you been
What have you done
So skittery-scary this Hallowe'en?

And where did you get
that pointed hat?
Tell me that,
Cat!


Black Cat!

Black cat, black cat
Looking for a witch.
All around the
Night is dark as pitch.
You can see because
Your eyes are greee.
Black cat, Black cat
This is Hallowe'en!


What Witches Do

The witches don their pointed hats,
The witches croak and croon,
The witches ride their broomsticks,
Away beyond the moon.

The witches don their flowing cloaks,
The witches stir their brew.
The witches chant their magic spells,
All the dark hours through.

The witches stroke their big black cats,
They comb their locks of gray,
Yet when the first faint daylight comes.
The witches hide away.


Skin and Bones

There was an old woman all skin and bones,
Oo-oo-oo-oo.
SHe lived down by the old graveyard,
Oo-oo-oo-oo.
One night she thought she'd take a walk,
Oo-oo-oo-oo.
She walked down by the old graveyard,
Oo-oo-oo-oo.
She saw the bones a-lying around,
Oo-oo-oo-oo.
She went to the closet to get a broom,
Oo-oo-oo-oo.
She opened the door and -------
BOO!!!


Hallowe'en Sounds

This is the way the witches fly, witches fly, witches fly,
This is the way the witches fly,
Swish, swish, swish.

This is the way the ghosts go by, ghosts go by, ghosts go by,
This is the way the ghosts go by,
Oooh, oooh , oooh.

This is the way the black cats howl, black cats howl, black cats howl,
This is the way the black cats howl,
Meow! Meow! Meow!

This is the way the pumpkins laugh, pumpkins laugh, pumpkins laugh,
This is the way the pumpkins laugh,
Hee! Hee! Hee!

This the way the night owls cry, night owls cry, night owls cry,
This is the way the night owls cry,
Hoo, hoo, hoo.


Trick or Treat

Witches, ghosts, and goblins.
Stealing down the street,
Knock on every door way,
Trick or treat!

When your door is opened,
This is what you meet,
Scary creatures shouting,
Trick or treat!


Witches

The moon was lost behind a cloud,
When something weird went by,
I tried to see it going,
It flew so fast and high,
I don't believe in witches,
But that is what I saw,
Sailing high up in the sky
On a broom stick made of straw.

The stars were gone,
The night was dark,
When something strange took place,
I could not quite believe it,
There was a gruesome face.

I don't believe in zombies,
But that is what I saw,
A skeleton with corpselike face,
I viewed it with awe.


Scarecrows

(can be sung to the tune of Sing a Song of Sixpence)

We're the farmer's scarecrows
We scare away the birds,
We keep the farmer's corn safe
Without any words;
But when Hallowe'en comes
We jump out of the ground
And we scare the boys and girls
When they come walking 'round.
Boo!


Hallowe'en Parade

Five white ghosts and seven goblins,
Go parading down the street,
Boys and girls with funny faces,
Asking for a treat.

If a goblin rings my doorbell,
I will say "I'm not afraid!"
I will light my jack-o'lantern,
For the Hallowe'en parade.

I will give these scary people,
Apples, candy, cakes to eat;
Then I'll wave goodbye and watch them
As they march off down the street.


There Was an Old Witch

There was an old witch
Belive it if you can,
She tapped on the windows
And she ran, ran, ran.
she ran helter skelter with her toes in the air,
Cornstalks flying from the old witches' hair.

Swish goes the broomstick, meow goes the cat,
Plop goes the hop-toad sitting on her hat.
"Whee,"chuckled I, "What fun, what fun!"
Hallowe'en night when the witches run!


Hallowe'en Warning

(can be sung to the tune of On Top of Old Smoky)

On Hallowe'en evening, one night in the year,
When ancient graves open, all the ghosts then appear.
We flit through the shadows, we moan and we groan,
We pounce on the mortal, straying too far from home.
So humans be wary, stay safely within
Let a Hallowe'en ghost, scares you out of your skin!
